Art Speaks: CONTINUUM – Family & Memory
Thursday, June 9, 2022 • 12 – 1 pm CT • FREE • via Zoom
Participating Artists: Hale Ekinci, Clare Hu, & Jocelyn Suzuka Figueroa, and Ivonne Yáñez (moderator)
Welcome to the first of two CONTINUUM panel discussions! In this conversation, artists in the exhibition will present their work in the context of a discussion around Family and Memory. A recurring theme throughout the exhibition, ties to identity are rooted in family relationships and imbedded in memories made throughout a lifetime. Join us for a personal foray into the studio practices of each of these artists, as they present their work and engage in moderated conversation with questions from the audience.
This special spring and summer exhibition showcases rising talent from across the country, and continues our commitment to outstanding, contemporary work being done by artists in support of underrepresented communities in the field of fiber art.
The range of work and practices, unique to each artist, addresses myriad ways that textile materials, processes, histories, and traditions continue to be used today to tell stories and share narratives about identities–both individual and community – through the eyes and hands of makers.
